Dr. Tabia Lee fired from woke California college after asking for anti-racism definition

Dr. Tabia Lee, a professor at the California College of the Arts (CCA), was fired from her position earlier this week after asking her students to define anti-racism.

The incident occurred during a virtual class discussion on May 6th, when Dr. Lee asked her students to define the term “anti-racism” in their own words. After receiving numerous complaints from students, CCA administrators decided to terminate Dr. Lee’s employment.

In a statement released by the college, CCA President Stephen Beal said, “At the College of the Arts, we believe in creating an open and welcoming environment for all students. We take any allegation of racism or discrimination very seriously and will not tolerate any such behavior. As a result of this incident, we have made the decision to terminate Dr. Lee’s employment.”

Dr. Lee has since spoken out about her dismissal, saying that she was simply trying to create a safe learning environment for her students and that her intention was not to cause any harm.

“I was trying to have an honest conversation about racism and how to be an ally to people of color,” Lee said in an interview with ABC News. “I am devastated to have been dismissed from my job, but I remain committed to fighting racism and educating others.”

The incident has sparked a debate on the importance of open dialogue and honest conversations about racism and other social issues. While some students have expressed their support for Dr. Lee, many have also expressed their disapproval of CCA’s actions.

At a time when racism and discrimination remain prevalent in society, it is essential that we have honest conversations about these topics and that we strive to create safe learning environments for all students. The dismissal of Dr. Lee is a reminder that we must remain vigilant and committed to upholding the values of equity and inclusion.
